Press PLAY/PAUSE more times to pause and play your CD.

Press STOP/OFF to entirely stop a CD that is playing.

If you are having trouble with the Lincolnwood Library Portable CD player, you can try:
-Try adjusting the volume to make sure the CD player wasn’t accidentally muted.
-Try replacing the two AA batteries if the CD player doesn’t respond.
-You can use the unit without two AA batteries with its included power cable.
-Make sure any CDs are fully inserted with the top facing up.
